Yellowstone/Teton Day 9: Goodbye Yellowstone, Hello Grand Teton!

Filed under: Yellowstone Trip 2006 — Mike U @ 11:07 pm

Grand Teton sunset with statocumulus clouds illuminated pink by the setting sunGreetings from Idaho!  I’m staying at the Driggs, ID Super 8 motel just on the west side of the Tetons.  This morning I left Yellowstone around 7:00am and on my way south, photographed the Gallitan mountains in amazing morning light from a location about 6 miles south of Mammoth.  In fact, this may be my best photography of the day.  I arrived at Grand Teton NP by midday.  The light wasn’t all that great a majority of the day with a lot of stratocumulus clouds lingering about and obscuring the highest peaks of the Teton range, including Grand Teton and Mount Moran.  I took a short 2 mile hike along a small lake shore which was fairly beautiful.  Towards evening, the cloud situation was still looking pathetic with mostly cloudy skies…except for the far southern portion of the park.  I chased the light, heading towards the Moose Junction.  The stratocumulus was more scattered down here, and by the time sunset rolled around, the remnant clouds were turning a beautiful pink hue.  The light all of the sudden became fantastic with the sky becoming increasing pink and violet.  This light only lasted 5 to 7 minutes or so, so I had to work quick.  I photographed from an overlook about a half mile north of the Moose Junction.  I shot a lot of zoomed images of Grand Teton as it was still producing clouds at its peak, which were a brilliant pink.  Some of the 400mm images were fairly interesting with the very jagged edges of the peak and the pink light with the clouds.  You can get pretty creative with 400mm of length and distant landscape scenes.  Anyway, time for bed, for I will be getting up very early for sunrise shoot.  Gotta take advantage of all the good light I can get before I have to head back.  More later!
